Monday, April 25, 2005, get off of my cloud.

The Tuesday April 19th Daily carried an item about a talk to be given at Stanford by the administrator to the Coalition Provisional Authority, L. Paul Bremer. Mr. Bremer was to discuss his views on Iraq and US foreign policy. Because the talk was closed to the outside community, the Daily did not follow up with a story about Bremer's appearance. The Daily might have hired a stringer from Stanford to cover the event, but the story failed to excite them. In the past, Executive Editor Diana Diamond has written a pessimistic assessment of Iraq following a talk by Hoover fellow Larry Diamond. As events in Iraq brighten the Daily seems unable to get out from under their perpetual cloud.

For those who are interested, here is how Bremer's talk was covered by the Stanford Daily.
